Duckhorn Napa Valley Howell Mountain 2013 750ml
The unique climate and soils on Howell Mountain are the key to the appellation’s success in producing powerful, age-worthy wines. Duckhorn Vineyards has sourced grapes from this distinctive region for more than a quarter century and has crafted a Howell Mountain bottling since 1989. Over the years, we have increased our commitment to this appellation with the purchase of two spectacular vineyards, Candlestick Ridge (28 acres) and Stout Ranch (36 acres). To encourage further complexity, we bottle-age this wine a year longer than our other wines prior to release. As a result, our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon offers excellent structure and deep color. This wine is suitable for long-term cellaring.
Capturing the essence of great mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a complex and beautifully structured wine with bright, uplifting acidity and a rich entry of dark brambly fruit, clove and mocha. Robust tannins and ripe berry flavors define the palate, along with layers of vanilla, nougat and sweet tea leaves. As the tannins evolve and resolve, they carry the wine to a long sweet tobacco leaf and cassis finish.
